5 Apps that Help You Target Your Goals

The new year is here and it’s time to start thinking of goals and objectives. At the beginning of a new year, it’s normal for most of us to set up a new goal or objective. Unfortunately these good intentions remain just that – good intentions. We never really focus on getting any of them completed. Now is the time to really think about the goals you want to accomplish this year. But unlike other years, you’ll now have the tech help you need to reach those goals. Here are five apps to help you meet your goals, whether it’s to lose weight, exercise more or be more financially independent.


Budget Smarter

A primary goal many of us have is to learn to budget and save money, but most people end up thinking this almost an impossible goal. But it’s not, especially if we have a nifty little app that shows us where we spend money and how we can save here and there; giving us a way to meet our financial goals.

Mint Bills is an app that will help you know where your money goes every month. This can be an eye-opening experience but it needed one to make better budget decisions.

New Website Monitoring Service – Major Uptime

Over the years we have run a number of online services utilizing various web hosting platforms and services.  As a website owner one of the worst things you can ever hear are comments from others such as:

“I can’t see your site”
“Its not coming up for me”
“I can’t upload the file”
“I sent you the email.  You didn’t get it?”

Major Uptime (www.majoruptime.com) provides Website Monitoring Services can check your website, email servers and various other connection types at regular intervals to ensure your information is available and ready for you, your customers and other visitors.  While most of the services we have tried in the past charged an intro rate of $9.95/month, they would renew at much higher prices all the way up to $99/month.  The Major Uptime product is far cheaper than anything we have seen.  The base package is $5/month which will monitor up to three items of your choice.  You can add more monitors for $1/month per each extra.  If you know you are going to be monitoring things for a longer period of time a 1 year subscription is just $36 which averages $3/month.

The nice thing about this service is you can set it and forget it.  Major Uptime will automatically alert you via email, text message or both if any of your monitoring services are triggered for connection issues.  Not only does it alert you of the outage, but it will also tell you what the type of error is.  Did you make some updates that accidentally broke the site? Is your site available for some people but not others?  These alerts will help you pinpoint the error and know who you should contact to help get things fixed.  For more information take a look at http://www.majoruptime.com.

A Personal Note From: Jonathan Burdon

If you have found this website it is highly likely that you are looking for web hosting, there are thousands of good web hosting providers around the world (and also a few not-so-good ones)… We hope you will find our site useful in your search for hosting.  In full disclose, many links that we have throughout our site are affiliate links; however, many of them including our Bluehost and Hostmonster affiliate links will actually get you a promotion for clicking on them.

Regardless, I wanted to write a short note to personally thank each of you for your continued support.
